HAHA! I'm imagining biting onto these tao poks..they must have absorbed lots of rich gravy and every bite burst in your mouth!?

I am sure this is a flavorful dish. It looks like it. Not too difficult to make either and that is what I like about it.

The magic about tofu pok in curry is that the tofu pok absorbs the gravy so well. Same effect for the stew too!
